About Starting an IP Law Practice

So you think you want to start your own intellectual property law firm. Do you want to practice out of your basement, in your slippers, with your dog nearby? Or do you want to develop a specialized IP law practice within a large law firm?

Start by asking yourself some critical questions:
  1. Are you ready to work the long hours needed?

  2. Do you have a high tolerance for risk?

  3. Do you have both the drive and patience to see it through?

  4. Do you have the business savvy to run a practice?

  5. Do you have the time necessary to build a business?

  6. Do you have the stamina?

  7. Do you have the self-respect to make mistakes and live through it?

  8. Can you face failure and survive?
And this is only the beginning. . .

Starting an IP Law Practice by Ann M. Mueting will help you ask the right questions, evaluate your options, and decide what is best for you as you embark on the adventure of developing your own IP practice.

These real-world examples cover all aspects of starting an IP practice, including acquiring an office, equipment, and staff; gettingand keepingclients; methods for establishing fees; accounting practices and procedures; and managing the practice, office, staff, and employee benefits.
